iptables SYNTAX

greetings all!

trying to create a basic firewall using iptables on a red hat 9.1 system.

can anybody tell me what's wrong with this command:

modprobe iptables_nat

the reply is - modprobe: Can't locate module iptables_nat

one more question - what's wrong with this command:

iptables -A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp -s $PRIV -j ACCEPT

trying to allow traffic in from the private network.

thanks for your help =}

First command:
There is no module iptables_nat; Try ip_tables; (iptables will add this module if it does not exist);

Second: For me it is JUST ok. I do not know what is in $PRIV variable..
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp -s -j ACCEPT.
